How do I submit my ontology?

To submit a new ontology for inclusion in the OBO Foundry, you will need to:

  1. Review the expectations and requirements for membership here.
  2. Submit your request to our GitHub tracker, using the New Ontology Request template. Note: please see the New Ontology Registration Instructions for guidance.
  3. Send an email to obo-discuss with your request to allow community feedback (you may need to apply to join group first.) Be sure to include the link to the issue you created in step 2.
  4. (Optional): If you would like to join the obo-community Slack, please indicate this in your email.

Please see this guide for detailed instructions and background.
